What is 5-Amino-1MQ?
5-amino-1MQ is a small molecule drug that functions to block the activity of an enzyme called nicotinamide N-methyltransferase (NNMT). NNMT plays a significant role in metabolism and energy and is predominantly active in fat tissue.
By blocking NNMT, 5-amino-1MQ stimulates an increase in nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD+), a cofactor that is central to cellular metabolism, thereby increasing metabolic rate and activating a gene called sirtuin-1 (SIRT1).
SIRT1 is also known as ‘the longevity gene’ because of its role in reducing the risk of diabetes, obesity, metabolic syndrome, atherosclerosis and other forms of cardiovascular disease, kidney disease, liver disease, neurodegeneration, and cancer.
This means that 5-amino-1MQ allows your body to burn fat for energy while maintaining muscle mass preferentially. 5-amino-1MQ is both safe and effective for reversing and preventing diet-induced obesity.
It is a potentially superior treatment option for individuals suffering from (or who are at risk for) type II diabetes and other metabolic comorbidities to obesity. Furthermore, the activation of SIRT1 by an increase in NAD+ suggests 5-amino-1MQ is a good option for patients who are looking to develop a comprehensive anti-aging protocol.
